Bespoke Post is a monthly membership club that delivers high-quality lifestyle products from up-and-coming brands. It’s voted as one of the best men’s subscription boxes of 2023 by our readers and it’s a great box for women and couples as well. 

When you sign up, there’s a quiz to determine your preferences and interests, then you’re matched with a new themed box every month. For $49 per month, each box promises at least $70 in retail value with items ranging from outdoor gear, barware, home, and kitchen goods, clothing, and more. If you're not into the boxes selected for you, there are many others to choose from.

Unlike most subscription boxes, you get to preview your Bespoke Post box before it ships and you can easily swap for a different box or skip the month for no charge. You only pay for the months that interest you. 

This is a review of the "Al Fresco" box.

This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out our editorial guidelines to learn more about how we review boxes.)

First Impressions


Bespoke Post almost always has a good presentation. They have a different sized box for everything.

Inside the Bespoke Post "Al Fresco" Box

Large Boules Set - Estimated Price $70


I'm a big fan of a good yard game. (Check out my review of Bespoke's "Toss" here.) I love a friendly outdoor competition on a warm day with a drink in your hand. So I jumped at the chance to pick up a (sort of) new game. Boules – also called Petanque (pronounced “pay-tonk”) – is essentially the French equivalent of the Italian game Bocce. Players toss larger balls to get as close to a smaller target ball as possible. Just a few rules and techniques are different, including the size, weight, and color of the balls, the throwing technique, and the area/surfaces in which they are played. If you feel like a more in-depth answer, check out this site I found.

This set includes six steel boules balls (three matte and three polished), a natural wood “jack” ball, distance marker, and it all comes in a classic, compact nylon carrying case. My only wish is that there was a set of rules included. I have a family reunion coming up soon and this will definitely gets lots of use.

Note: I couldn't find this exact set. Here is a different set on Amazon for $29, but I don't think it's quite as nice. Here is a similar set, also on Amazon, for $70. In fact, the prices for Boules sets vary wildly. I'm not sure if there is a significant size or quality different or something I'm missing.

Asobu Wine Bottle Cooler - Retail Price $45


If you really want to class up your game of Boules, why not play with a glass of rosè? And keep that wine cool with this neat wine chiller from Asobu. It's 7 inches tall and measures 5 inches in diameter. The stainless steel is sleek. Don't let the photo on Asobu's website fool you. You are not meant to put ice in the cooler with the wine – a fact I just learned today. Just throw a cold bottle in the chiller. The bottle creates a pocket of cold air, and because the density of colder air is higher than that of warmer air, the cooler air stays inside the wine cooler. I'm more of a beer guy, but I like knowing if my guest want cold wine during a game of Boules, I can whip this bad boy out and impress.


I love adding games to our collection. So I was excited about this offer from Bespoke Post. I liked the Boules set is compact and classic. I like that it's slightly different than Bocce, so my guests will be caught off guard. (I just need to learn the new rules.) I think the wine chiller was an excellent pairing with the game. It's classier than a couple of beer coolers. All in all, a solid offering from Bespoke Post. I'd like to see even more games and party items.

Let's Talk About Value

To be honest, I'm not sure what to value this box at, since this specific Boules set is no where to be found. However, there are several similar sets that consistently cost around $70. So what the heck? Let's go with that. Together, that's a value of $115. That's more than twice the cost of this sub ($54 with shipping). With the value I saved, I think I may buy a couple bottles of wine.

To Wrap Up

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes, the "Al Fresco" is available at the time of this post. If you ever do miss out on something though, be sure to check back, because boxes usually return or there are similar items.
